Oak, Granite, & Grass. Santa Ysabel Gorge, California. 25 May 2010.
To me this is one of those images that says 'California'. Cheryl and I were in the gorge to photograph a habitat rehabilitation project. In this image you can see one of the results of the project...natural grasses that are re-appearing. You can see them running from the center of the image off to the right lower corner.
I also find it interesting that the oak trees all have green grass underneath them. Not sure what causes the green. We talked about it and concluded that perhaps the green grasses are supported by both the duff under the trees, and and the shade.
Also in this image, atop the large rock lower center, is a ground squirrel (one of many).
